FreshCo is a Canadian chain of deep discount supermarkets owned by Sobeys. It launched in March 2010, and as of April 2019, it had 98 stores across Canada. Its mission statement is to “create a better everyday shopping experience”. According to its website, “our customers should always feel free to spend as much money as they want at FreshCo.”
Mandy Rennehan is the heart, soul, brains, and brawn behind the FreshCo brand
In 1995, Mandy Rennehan started Freshco, a company that now serves Fortune 500 companies in Canada and the eastern United States. Today, she is considered the country’s most successful retail specialist, having grown the company from scratch with her own two hands. While it has been difficult to break the traditional image of skilled trades, Mandy has managed to do it with an authenticity and powerhouse mentality.
The Canadian businesswoman founded Freshco in 1995 and has since become one of Canada’s most powerful women. Rennehan has also given TED talks and written books, and she rubs shoulders with top executives from American big business. Though women are making progress in the area of equality, Rennehan’s blue-collar background makes her a perfect candidate for leadership roles in the company.
Three money-saving guarantees
With its easy-to-navigate store layout, FreshCo focuses on the freshest foods at low prices while highlighting special deals and savings. Its customers also benefit from three money-saving guarantees, including a Double Fresh guarantee, a rain check for flyer deals, and price matching on competing retailers. In addition to these guarantees, FreshCo stores also offer in-store pharmacies. And if you ever run out of something, you can always visit one of FreshCo’s many locations.
As part of their mission to provide fresh, healthy foods to the community, FreshCo stores have customized their assortment to local communities. The friendly and helpful staff of FreshCo stores help customers find deals on produce and other items that are often unavailable elsewhere. The three money-saving guarantees are a testament to the brand’s commitment to its customers. Sobeys is now working on opening ten new FreshCo locations in British Columbia and Manitoba this year. In Winnipeg, two FreshCo stores will open on Thursday. In Richmond, two more are slated to open in May, and two more are slated to open in Surrey and Chilliwack later this year.
South Asian focus
Sobeys Inc. has opened a new store with a South Asian focus in Brampton, Ontario, known as Chalo! FreshCo. Chalo means “let’s go” in South Asian languages. The new store features full-service seafood and meat counters, halal meat, and a popular Indian restaurant. The store also offers a wide range of North American brands at value-priced prices.
As the population of India increases, so does the need for more Indian and South Asian groceries. The Indian grocery store also carries products like henna and hair care products made in India. The meat department reflects South Asian tastes and includes two meat counters: a non-halal one and a halal one. The non-halal meat counter focuses on lamb, mutton, and goat. The halal counter has a larger selection of marinated meats, fish, and poultry.
Chalo! FreshCo stores are now open in Richmond and Surrey. These stores have a South Asian focus and are geared toward the South Asian community. In addition to providing low-priced foods, Chalo! FreshCo also features an in-store restaurant. The company plans to open more locations in Surrey, including one in Mission. In the near future, more locations will follow. And as they continue to expand, they will offer even more fresh options for their customers.
Chalo! FreshCo offers a large selection of South Asian groceries. The stores are open seven days a week, from 7 am to 11 pm. The store also features an in-store restaurant that serves various Indian dishes. FreshCo is also opening stores in former Safeway locations. They also offer halal meat and vegetarian options. They have a South Asian focus and have locations across British Columbia and Ontario. It is unclear how many of these locations will be open in the next few years.
Search for a star campaign
Chesney and Gemma were photographed enjoying a lavish photo shoot in Oakhill, followed by a late-night in the green room. Apparently, they overslept and missed their shift at Prima Doner. When Dev found out, he accused them of working for a competitor and summarily dismissed them. Chesney was subsequently summarily fired from the firm. While this is unfortunate, the story of his missteps is an entertaining read.
Chesney and Gemma were extremely worried about their son’s health. Tara rang them to remind them that Freshco was holding a promotional launch the next day. But this clashed with their hearing test. Gemma was determined to attend the hearing test, but Tara refused to rearrange the date of the launch. Gemma was distraught. She asked Chesney if they would be able to rearrange the launch time.
